How to make a wreath out of burlap ribbon

I've been slowly adding Summer touches around the house. Today's project came out after finding the burlap ribbons I used in last year's flag window art.

Is kind of fun to go and look at the stuff I've accumulated throughout the years and think about new ways to use it.

This is a very easy wreath, the only materials you'll need are
a big embroidery hoop (mine was already red, you don't need to paint it), burlap ribbon on the three colors of the flag, and scissors.

Red, white and blue burlap ribbon

Since my ribbon was already cut in pieces from last year's project, I folded each piece in three and cut them, each piece was about 10 ~ 12", you can even make them a bit longer. Each piece was cut in half lengthwise.

Then, it was only a matter of tie each piece of burlap onto the hoop...

alternating the red and natural color ribbons, and...

Leaving the last quarter of the hoop for the blue ribbon

That's it! Your rustic burlap ribbon is done, you can attach other decorations before hanging it on your door.
